Pigeon Religion - Crystallized Meth
Label: Video Disease
Originally released as a two song cassette, then a third jam was tacked on for the vinyl version.
Muddy, noisey, Flipper-y, kinda like a mix between golden age Vermiform Records and later Three One G Records. Make sense? The band or label or someone says they play Birthday Party type music. I'm not sure I hear that, but they do seem to have a kindred spirit with the old early 80's deathrock bands, the reverb, the chaos, and the general darkness, but reinterpreted by dudes who grew up listening to Arab On Radar or something.
When they get into a good dirge, it's fucking great...if you like dirges...which I do.
